BOUNTY TO SOLDIERS. 

The followinj^ amount of money has been paid to Veteran 
Yolunteers of Company H, 1st Regt. Mass. Heavy Artillery, 
who re-enlisted under the call of the President of the United 
States, dated October 1863, and under authority of Chapter

and by a vote of Andover passed May 22, 1882. 

We have paid forty-two of the number, and there are still

Report of Overseers of Poor. 



There is little change to note in this establishment the 
past year, The expenses have been more than we expected ; 
caused partly by tlie advance in the cost of supplies bought, 
and partly by the failure in a large measure of tlie farm 
produce. There has also been more sickness tlmn usual, 
and six deaths, — a larger number than ever before in one 
year. 

Everything in connection with the place is in first class 
condition, and only a small appropriation will be required 
for repairs ; and we think the usual appropriation of $4000 
will be ample to meet the running expenses of the house. 

The Overseers desire to bring before the Town the fact 
that in case of fire at the Almsliouse the water supply is 
entirely insufficient to be of any benefit. We should have 
to depend upon the fire department ; and before that could 
arrive the property would, in all probability, be destroyed. 
An examination has been made, and a never-failing spring, 
or brook, has been found on the Town land, where it is 
believed a reservoir can be built and a windmill put up at 
a cost of five hundred dollars that will give an ample supply 
of water for the use of the house and sufficient for all pur- 
poses in case of fire. The Overseers believe it to be their 
duty to lay this matter before the Town, that some action 
may be taken upon it at the March meeting. 

The relief out of the Almshouse will be about the same as 
usual, and 13000 will be needed. We have not used this 
amount the past year, but the number at the Insane Asylum 
is more than usual, and as will be seen by our report the 
cost of the inmates there is considerable.

Report of the Chief Engineer 



OF THE 



Fire Department. 



To THE Board op Selectmen: 

Oentlemen, — In accordance with the Regulations of the 
Fire Department, I submit the following Report. 

The force of the department consists of five Engineers, 
sixteen members of the Steamer Company, and forty mem- 
bers of the Shawshin Company at Ballard Yale. 

The apparatus consists of one third-class steam fire-engine, 
and one hand-engine, witli a hose-carriage for each ; also one 
four-wheeled horse hose-carriage, carrying 1000 feet of hose, 
all of which are in good order. 

We have hooks, ladders, and ropes at each engine-house 
and 2400 feet of liose in good condition. 

There have been eight alarms of fire during the past year. 

March 1, 1882, chimney in house of J. W. Foster. 

July 4, 1882, bonfire on Central Street. 

Aug. 3, 1882, fire in woods at Woodlin farm, Ballard Yale. 
Damage $200. 

Aug. 3, 1882, fire in woods at Woodlin farm, Ballard Yale. 
Damage $90. 

Aug. 15, 1882, fire in woods at Lowell Junction. Damage 
125. 

Aug. 15, 1882, fire in woods at Lowell Junction. Damage 
$150. 

Nov.25, 1882, fire on railroad at Ballard Yale. Damage 
$25. 



52 

Jan. 8, 1883, fire in house of William Abbott. Damage 
f50. 

During the past year there has been erected a new engine- 
house, with ample accommodations for the steam fire-engine 
and hose-carriages, with suitable arrangements for cleaning 
and drying hose, and a room for a hook and ladder truck, of 
which the department stands in need, also room for a stable, 
should the Town at any time decide to purchase horses for 
use in this department and on the highways. 

I would recommend for your consideration the necessity of 
a proper means of heating the new engine-house, and would 
suggest the practicability of a steam heating apparatus large 
enough for heating both the engine-house and the town house. 

I would also call your attention to tlie fact that the supply 
of water for fire purposes is entirely insufficient, and in a dry 
time would leave a large amount of property unprotected in 
case of fire. 

I would recommend that 11600 be appropriated for the 
running expenses of the Fire Department for the ensuing 
year.

found to be in a bad condition in October. We had supposed 
that it could be repaired, so that it would be safe for another 
year ; but on examining it, in company with the Selectmen, 
it was thought best to rebuild it, and therefore we had to 
overdraw our appropriation enough to rebuild the same.

Report of Cemetery Committee. 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their Annual 
Report, together with the receipts and expenditures for the 
year ending February 7th, 1883. 

The substantial face wall which was commenced at the 
northern entrance several years ago, and continued for sev- 
eral rods on the westerly side of the Cemetery, has the past 
year been extended by the road nearly as far as the land is 
cleared, and a new entrance has been opened at that point. 
An unusually large number of lots has been disposed of 
during the year ; Mr. J. P. Bradlee, proprietor of the Ballard 
Yale factories, having purchased fourteen, which he has 
distributed among his older employees. Owners of lots con- 
tinue to beautify and improve them, several valuable monu- 
ments having been recently erected. 

The Committee find much necessary work yet to be done 
in laying out and gravelling the avenues and paths, as found 
upon the plan of the Cemetery recently obtained, and in 
further protection of the entire enclosure from intrusion. 
They therefore respectfully ask an appropriation of S250, 
together with the avails of the lots sold during the ensuing 
year.

Eleventh Annual Report 



OF THE 



Trustees of IVIemorial Hall 



It is the privilege of the Trustees to address the Town this 
year in words of hearty congratulation, in view of the great 
and unexpected good fortune that has fallen to its lot. In 
our report of last year we had occasion to mention the cir- 
cumstance that the Library, though supplied with the means 
of making some additions to its collection, could not continue 
its present rate of growth solely on the strength of the money 
derived annually from the dog-licenses. Tlie question was 
asked, " Shall we fall behind in our purchase of new books 
which every one wishes to see ? Or will some way be found 
of securing to the Library the addition of §200 a year, per- 
manent income ? " This question has been answered from the 
far away city of New York in a way whicli must be peculiarly 
gratifying to every citizen of Andover, and which makes tlie 
year 1882 a shining one in the annals of our Library. This 
is the answer. 

New York, Nov. 23, 1882. 
Joseph W. Smith, Esq., 

President Board of Trustees Memorial Hall, Andover, Mass. 

Dear Sir : I hand you enclosed my check for five thou- 
sand dollars (85000) as a gift to the Memorial Hall Library 
of Andov.er. The only condition I make is, that it should be 
invested as a permanent fund for all coming time, and the 
income only to be used each year for the purchase of books 
for the Library. I make this gift as a testimonial of my love 



65 

and affection for the home of my boyhood, and the warm 
and abiding interest I still take in the welfare and prosperity 
of the town. 

It has been most gratifying to me to be informed by you of 
the interest the citizens have taken in the Library in the past, 
and I trust it will continue for many years to come. 
With sentiments of respect and affection, I remain, 
Yours very truly, 

JOHN BYERS. 

At a special meeting of the Trustees held on Saturday 
evening Nov. 25, the gift of Mr. Byers was formally accepted, 
and acknowledged by the following communication. 

Andover, Mass., Nov. 29, 1882. 
John Byers, Esq. ' ^ 

Dear Sir: The munificent gift tendered by you to the 
Trustees of Memorial Hall, is received by them with a full 
appreciation of the generosity that has dictated it, and with a 
lively remembrance of that interest in the welfare of our 
Library which at an earlier date led you to contribute largely 
to its foundation. The present gift is as timely as that which 
ten years ago filled three alcoves with books of solid worth 
in memory of your brother, Peter Smith Byers. By a vote of 
the Board of Trustees this fund will be permanently invested, 
and known as the John Byers Fund, the interest being appro- 
priated solely to the purchase of books. It will enable the 
Trustees to place upon the shelves, books which have hitherto 
been beyond their reach, and will add very much to the value 
of the Library, as a means of culture for those who desire 
improvement as well as amusement. It will make it in time 
a collection of great value, and cannot but add largely to the 
attractions of this old and honorable town of which you have 
such pleasant remembrances. For books 

" Are a substantial world both pure and good, 
Round these with tendrils strong as flesh and blood 
Our pastime and our happiness will grow." 

There can be no question but that the people of Andover 



66 

will have associations connected with your name as pleasant 
as those which you now have of the place of your boyhood. 
In behalf of the Trustees, 

I am very truly yours, 

JOSEPH W. SMITH, 

President of the Board, 

In the day of assured competence there is often a peculiar 
pleasure in looking back to the period of early growth ; and 
as we shall probably have no occasion to mention the con- 
dition of our finances in the Annual Reports for a long time 
to come, a slight sketch of our resources, past and present, 
will not be without interest. 

The sum originally placed at the disposal of the Trustees 
for the foundation and support of the library was $6000. Of 
this $3000 were given by Mr. John Smith, with whom tlie 
plan of a Public Library originated, and $3000 were the gift 
of the same absent son of Andover who has now so handsomely 
placed the capstone on the edifice. This sum was given as 
a memorial of the brother of the donor, Peter Smith Byers ; 
and was accompanied by the request that it be expended for 
the purchase of books of permanent worth. In accordance 
with this request, three alcoves were designated as the Peter 
Smith Byers alcoves, and nearly filled with standard works 
of English literature. In addition to this the Trustees ex- 
pended about $1000 in providing books of a lighter cliaracter. 
At this time no sum was at the disposal of the Trustees for 
the supply of newspapers to the reading-room. Mr. Joseph 
W. Smith met this want by the annual donation of $34, until 
the year 1874. In that year the Town voted to appropriate 
the sum derived from dog-licences to the use of the library 
and reading-room, — an appropriation which has been con- 
tinued up to the present time, and which has given them a 
sum averaging not far from $370 annually. In September 
1877 a donation of $1000 was received from Mr. Peter Smith 
most of which was expended in carrying out a suggestion, by 
which it was accompanied, that the grounds about the build- 



6T 

ing be improved ; and in January of the succeeding year Mr. 
John Smith sent to the Trustees a check for 81000, to be 
used for the purchase of books. This sum as we have re- 
marked, was nearly exhausted at the close of our last financial 
year. 

The annual examination of the Library shows that the 
property has been well taken care of, and tliat no loss has 
been sustained. For details we refer the reader to the care- 
ful and elaborate' report of our Librarian ; and, in connection 
with that report, we would once more call attention to its 
great value as a Supplementary Catalogue, and to the impor- 
tance of preserving it every year.

Town Clerk's Report 



To THE Selectmen op the Town of Andover : 

Gentlemen, — I respectfully present to you my Report for 
the Year 1882. 

The publication of the registration of this town is deemed 
'advisable for the information of the townspeople, and to 
give opportunity for tlie supply of any omissions and the 
correction of any errors that may appear ; and the Clerk 
will thankfully receive any information respecting the same. 

It will be seen that there are omissions of children's names 
in the birth list. This is a growing evil. There are more 
than two hundred such omissions in the records made since 
the present method of registration was adopted, in 1843. A 
list of these can be seen in the Clerk's office. " Naming the 
baby" is sometimes a difficult question to decide; but it 
ought to be decided before the Town Clerk or his agent 
appears on his yearly rounds. 

" Probably few persons are aware of the importance of an 
accurate registration to every civilized country, or of the 
legal and historic value of the statistics obtained. The 
decision of questions of legitimacy, of legal settlement in 
towns, and various other contested points may often depend 
upon the facts registered ; to say nothing of the important 
deductions relating to longevity, local salubrity, the relations 
of diseases, and the general subject of vital and mortuary 
statistics." 

The vital statistics are as follows :
